is creating novels and art

Hi, everyone, I’m Colleen Houser, and I’d like to thank everyone for taking a peek at my page. 

On the profile tips, Patreon told me not to write a novel, but I have no idea how to do that. I am a novelist! If I could keep it short and sweet, I’d be a short story writer selling to magazines, but I can’t. I’ve written one short story in my entire career just to see if I could, and while it was award-winning, it took me forever to get it under the 4,000-word limit.

My pride and joy are my four novels that make up the Wingéd series. It’s a fantasy/metaphysical fiction combining the epic demon battles of death with the heart-wrenching internal struggle of life. Currently, I’m working on a full-color supplemental guidebook to the series’ world and sixth novel. So, I’m also an artist. I mostly do illustrations of my own series, but you might see me working on merchandise too.


A lot of Patreon profiles say they want to quit their full-time jobs in order to create full-time. I’m different. When I was fifteen years old, I was diagnosed with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis commonly called Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS/ME). Personally, I would love a full-time job. It would be easier. Then, I could write and invest in myself because I’m awesome. But the last time that I had a full-time job, I was sick constantly and ended up in urgent care. And applying for disability with CFS/ME is difficult and complicated especially when you can/have to work part-time like I do.

Your patronage would allow me to invest in my writing business. There are a considerable amount of costs to make a book series a success. I need reader reviews, professional reviews, editing, inventory, advertising, funds for conferences and conventions, and so much more to put out a great product and receive a little visibility.

I don’t want to have enough money to quit my job. I want to have enough money to contribute by doing what I love. And moreover, I want to share my work, my experience, and my world. I live in my head. I want to be able to put it out there and say, “This is where I live. Isn’t it amazing? I made it for you.”



At the $1 pledge mark, you will gain access to all my patron-only posts which will include exclusive peeks behind the scenes, not yet released images and material.

At the $5 pledge mark or above, you will gain access to my private Facebook page where I post research, word count progress, and works in progress. You will be able to message me, ask questions, and make suggestions.

At the $25 pledge mark or above, once a month, you will have the opportunity to send me 1200 words of writing, and I will give you my take. OR you can receive a signed personalized paperback of a previously published work.

The $50 pledge mark will entitle you to a one-time commissioned drawing as the Wingéd of your choice OR all four of the Wingéd series paperbacks.

Once again, thanks for taking a look at my page. I look forward to working with you!
